What's great is since I (like most) buy every 2 years , and am upgrading from a 5, I also get all the improvements from the 5S (low light etc.). This week's new "stuff" is not the ONLY new stuff for most people. 5 to 6 is quite a nice jump.
And here I was thinking PRE-loaded music would be tacky. This is worse! Not thought through very well. Or at least, glitchy: I have auto-downloads enabled, and I did NOT get it. I had to go to Purchased to download it manually, (And figuring out to even do that was non-obvious.) The store should simply have had a big Free banner, and this could have worked just like the Free Song of the Week, only promoted more. No need to mix things up! (Plus, I like a lot of U2 but...
Good! I shop at places that only take Discover (some deal worked out) and so it's the one card I prefer for the sake of a single monthly bill.
I'm excited to read the first hands-on reviews of these paper models!
We already knew they were paid--Cook and Bono said so at the event. What we didn't know is that the amount was undisclosed! Kudos to Time for digging that detail up. And here I was believing I knew the number....
Samsung astroturfers will no doubt say that volume and thinness (which their cheap plastic has not delivered) don't matter for easy pocketability, only length... because it's the only dimension they've gotten smaller. Of course the reverse is true. Even the biggest phone is not long enough to stick out of my pockets--not even close. But thinness in a pocket is important.
Big phones are awkward (a necessary trade-off--they're great in many ways too). At least Reachability is LESS awkward (and wastes the screen less) than Samsung's attempt at a "special one-handed mode." Reachability is ALWAYS available, not a special setting, yet is only visible during the moment you need it; and it maintains the full width of the display rather than looking like a mistake with Samsung's L-shaped black bars. As a one-handed phone devotee, it's a...
My interest in buying a wearable was 0 out of 10, especially after seeing everything else out there. My only interest in seeing this unveiled was technical curiosity: what would Apple do in a new category I don't care about? Now it's 7 out of 10. Give it a SOLID day battery--not 8-12 hours--and it would reach 8. No product will ever have the huge market of smartphone, but this IS a worthy new category after all. I'm hoping I can hold out for the second generation before...
I was cringing at Gruber's over-1080p prediction, even though some software clues pointed that way. Those kinds of super-high DPI are very difficult to detect when you're specifically trying--and impossible in actual use--whilt they BURN BATTERY and MEMORY and SLOW the GPU. A phone should not have an iMac screen shrunk small. Doing so is pure marketing by other companies, trying desperately to differentiate their near-identical products. I'm glad Apple stopped at 1080p!...
"U2 spokesman" has just stolen the crown from DigiTimes for Most Unreliable Source of Information. (P.S. Even though I have all the iTunes cloud options turned on, the album does NOT appear in my library, yet shows as Purchased in the store. I'm sure it will eventually appear--just pointing out that Boredumb is not wrong. It's not working the same for everyone instantly.)
